Wildfires – British Columbia, Canada

Thousands of Williams Lake, B.C., residents are being forced from their homes as high winds fan a wildfire burning next to the community. An evacuation order was issued Saturday evening for the entire City of Williams Lake and numerous surrounding areas including the village of 150 Mile House that have been under threat from nearby fires for almost a week.

BC Wildfire Service said Saturday there are about 161 active wildfires in the province, 14 of which pose a direct threat to communities.
